PREPPERS CHECKLIST
This Prepppers Checklist is a list of functions, or capabilities that you need to provide for in each of the survival categories, especially if you’re a beginner at prepping. Unlike other preppers checklists, this checklist isn’t a shopping list of items that
you need to get or put into a kit. It does something much more important for your family’s survival.

Instead, it helps identify which functions you WILL need to make sure that you can perform within a category. Another way of stating it is that the checklist will tell you WHAT you need to accomplish, but not HOW you need to accomplish it.

This method is the one that I use allows for individual needs while still accomplishing common goals.
The list is broken up into general categories to help keep things organized and each Category is broken up into several sub- sections, allowing for Minimum and Extended Capabilities.

The Minimum Capability is the minimum amount of preparedness that you should strive to accomplish as fast as possible. It’s the basic set of functions that a person starting out should strive to achieve as soon as possible. The Extended Capability allows for surviving longer durations and/or increases the capacity of that group.

Notes:
Minimum-prepared foods are those that require little or no cooking before eating.
Flatware means plates, bowls, cups, spoons, forks, knives, napkins, etc. The idea of disposable flatware is to reduce consumption of water and is typically for shorter-term events. Those with extended capabilities for alternate energy and water will have less use for disposable flatware.
Oils: make sure you have enough oil, lard, etc. on hand to cover the increase in pan-cooking.

Information, Entertainment & Plans

Minimum Capabilities:
Acquire the proper insurance (home, renter, auto, health, life etc.) and safeguard the insurance plan and contact information
Document with pictures and/or video all possessions for insurance purposes, including writing down the serial numbers for guns and electronics.

Personal Items Purse
Wallet ID
Watch Money
Daily carry items

Notes:
A “last-minute checklist” is generally a bad thing to implement. It’s better to have all the equipment and supplies on hand before an event occurs.
A Grab List is a list of items that you want to take with you in case you need to evacuate your home. The grab list should include everything that you would want to take, in priority order, so that you don’t have to try and remember while you’re
scrambling to evacuate.
Additional Entertainment considerations include games for kids, books (or reading material) for both education and learning resources, and books that show how to play more games (adult and children) using cards and other materials.
It’s a good idea to keep important documents in a fire-resistant safe
Entertainment items such as DVDs and CDs require the use of additional electronics and power, see appropriate categories.

A “Trigger Point” is an event that you have pre-determined that will cause you to enact certain parts of your plan. For example, When virulent H5N1 reaches Canada or Mexico, your plan calls for you to do (whatever that might be).

Doomsday Consequences

or a period of time in recent history, antibiotics were heralded as being the most effective possible treatment for infectious diseases. Most of those illnesses were caused by bacterial agents, so the use of medications that killed off harmful bacteria was a sensible, practical solution. However, there is no clear indication that anyone within the medical or scientific communities saw the rapid evolution of antibiotic resistance coming. Even if someone did, history certainly doesn't reflect it all that well. Regardless of the slip-up of the past, it is now understood that the typical antibiotic has a limited lifespan now, being rendered nearly useless as soon as the bacterial agent they target has developed resistance to their effects. This was the case with tuberculosis, which was once thought to have been wiped out in the developed world, and is the case with many other bacterial infections.

The problem of dealing with antibiotic resistance is a complex one. Some bacterial agents have developed their resistance only to certain agents – though those agents are the ones that are prescribed as treatment. Other microbes, on the other hand, have developed effective antibiotic resistance to all antimicrobial agents currently available on the market. This situation, some public health officials worry, is bound to cause major problems. A number of experts are pointing out the gradual increase in the number of resistant cases of tuberculosis to be an indication of the possible damage this problem can cause. With tuberculosis being resistant to all the current drugs used against it, treatment for patients with the resistant strain is becoming more and more difficult, and the disease is becoming more and more fatal.

One single illness that has antibiotic resistance does not a major public health problem make. Most authorities in the medical field would not be worried if there wasn't evidence that other bacterial infections are starting to prove as resilient as the common cold. The common cold has long been a problem for medicine, such that being able to develop a cure for it has long been considered impossible. The bacteria at the root of the cold adapts with a rapid pace, becoming resistant to the effects of medication used to treat it the year before. While hardly something that is life-threatening, there is a very strong possibility that other, more dangerous bacterial agents might emerge with the same level of adaptability. Another possible scenario involves multiple bacterial agents developing resistance and reemerging into the public arena. Their infectious nature and antibiotic resistance, plus the relative degree of congestion in the average urban area, nearly guarantees a rapid spread of infection.

If this sounds like a bad plot for a doomsday scenario in a science fiction novel, that's because said scenarios may not really be that far off the mark. Bacterial adaptation against countermeasures being used against them is at a much faster rate than how fast researchers can develop new antibiotic medication. For example, a hospital in Switzerland found that, within a period of three years, the strains of Escherichia coli that they encountered developed resistance to all five known types of antibacterial agents for it. They have also noted that this sudden increase in resistance was linked to the increased use of said antimicrobial agents, which has caused some to believe that the very success and widespread use of antibiotics is the root cause of the problem. The more bacteria are exposed to the medication, the higher the chances that a mutated strain will emerge that is resistant to the effects.

The Doomsday Factor

he Doomsday Factor.

Revelation 18:3-18:8

The Doomsday Factor.
The First and Second Jewish Temples were Located on the Temple Mount, which is in danger of collapse. Many christians today have no idea that there is prophecy of the three temples. Many even denigh the fact. But The temple mount is the center of all prophecy and conflict between the Isralies and Muslims. The Anti- Christ will put his image in the third temple and cause it to speak.
2Pe 2:1-3. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”
Here is prophecy being fulfilled. The Israeli rabbinical council involved with re-establishing the Sanhedrin, is calling upon all groups involved in Temple Mount research to prepare detailed architectural plans for the reconstruction of the Jewish Holy Temple.[The Third Temple.] Muslims believe the Temple Mount is the place where Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, ascended to heaven. On the other hand, for Jews and Christians, the Temple Mount is the place where the Jewish temple once stood and is the "center of spiritual and religious national aspirations of the Jews in Israel," [The Temple of Soloman.] In addition, the Temple Mount was where Jesus taught and overturned the moneychangers’ tables. {Mat 21:12-13. And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, “It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”}
The Sanhedrin is the name given in the mishna to the council of seventy-one Jewish sages who constituted the Supreme Court and legislative body in Judea during the Roman period. The make-up of the council included a president, vice president, and sixty-nine general members who all sat in the form of a semi-circle when in session. Though the majority of the membership of the 71-member "new" Sanhedrin remain anonymous, three out of seven members who have been selected to represent the body are leaders of the Temple Mount movement, an array of radical groups who advocate demolishing the Al-Aqsa Mosque to make way for a third temple in Jerusalem. Further, the "new" Sanhedrin has confirmed its place within the Temple Mount Movement by announcing its intention to take steps toward the rebuilding of the temple. Subscribers to the Temple Mount Movement believe that, by rebuilding of the Temple, they can usher in a Messianic Era of eternal peace.[ref. Dan_7:20-25, Dan_8:9-12; Rev_13:11-13]
To understand better, we must turn to the Word of God.
Dan 9:26-27. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he[anti-christ] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week[7 years]: and in the midst of the week[3.5 years] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the over-spreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The Doomsday Factor that we see today is the struggle over the land promised by God to Israel thru, Moses, Aaron & Abraham. “The threat of an attack by Jewish extremists on the Temple Mount is of great concern to Israeli security officials as Israel prepares to withdraw from Gaza, according to former Shin Bet head Avi Dichter. Security officials refer to the possibility as the "doomsday scenario." An attack on the Temple Mount (Dome of The Rock) would be disastrous for Israel and the rest of the Christian world. Many would be killed, not only in Israel but the entire world. World War would break out.
Here is Gods promise to Israel. Deu 11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. [ Ref; Gen_15:18-21; Exo_23:31; Num_34:3-15; Jos_1:3, Jos_1:4, Jos_14:9; 1Ki_4:21, 1Ki_4:24; 2Ch_9:26]
2Pe 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
Zec 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Rev 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
The end is coming, weather you believe or not. prophecy is being fulfilled and the doomsday factor has already started. Let me leave you with one last thought from Christ; ” I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?” [Luk_12:51, Luk_12:52; Isa_11:4; Joe_2:30,Joe_2:31; Mal_3:2, Mal_3:3, Mal_4:1; Mat_3:10-12] ars.
